APPROPRIATIONS Was the integrity of the Student Council shown in full at their last appropriation meeting? The student body is now supporting the hobby of some twenty members of a particular dub (of which one member is not even enrolled at MSM) to the'sum of four hundred dollars'. . . While this expenditure might not seem to be very overwhelming, we should look back to see what happened to a few of the other clubs and organizations, Other organizations such as the· Freshman, Sophomore, and urrior classes had their requests cut by at least seventy-five dollars. The M Club and International Club had their requests reduced by some 'One hundred dollars. The Athletic'. program was cut five hundred dollars. The Mineral Club was cut $1,050.00. The reduction of Mineral Club request might appear to be highly unfavorable and unfair, but this cut is really justi£;able and fair in this respect. While the classes, the M Club, and the International Club use their appropriations for homecoming and dances, which money truly reverts back to. each student; the money appropriated to the Mineral Club is dissipated among some twenty people.' .

The first Montana Coal Resources Symposium was held in the ballroom of the Finlen Hotel October 9 and 10. The symposium was sponsored by the Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology, with the cooperation and assistance of the Montana School of Mines, Montana State University, and Montana State College. The general theme was "What are Montana's coal resources, and how can they be used to broaden Montana's industrial base?" It was noted that what applies to Montana will also apply to the whole Northwest and to the states and Canadian provinces that encompass the huge Fort Union coal region. The conference attracted more than two hundred representatives of government, business, industry and education from all parts of the United States, and from several Canadian provinces. The Montana School of Mines was well represented by faculty members and interested students. Dr. Sidney Groff, Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology, in opening the conference, said, "We look to vast virtually untapped mineral resources as the basis of new industries, which will' keep our young people in Montana. Of these resources, coal is the most abundant." Governor Tim Babcock's message, presented by Mr. Robert Matson, Montana State Planning Board, stated in part, "Coal is one of Montana's greatest natural resources and underlies vast areas of the state. The estimated tonnages of .this resource stagger the imagintaion-222 billion short tons, of which subbituminous and lignite coal comprise nearly 99 percent. Coal is, without doubt, one of Montana's largest underdeveloped natural resources. Increased utilization of coal for fuel is steam generation, and as a raw material for the chemical industry would provide additional jobs in our state and create new basic wealth." Different topics discussed throughout the two-day session were "Montana Coal Production," "Montana's Coal Resources," coal economics coal rates and railroads, coal future for the Treasure State, Montana coal lands and the state's leasing p~licy, and t.he history of leases, permits and licenses on public coal lands. Participating in the concluding period with Dr. Leon' Johnson, PresIdent of the Montana State College, was Dr. E. G. Koch, President of the Montana School of Mines. Representative Arnold Olsen discussed the politics' of coal. He said "The coal industry has had the co~ operation of government in the export of coal. \Ve have increased the exports 15% in four years." Dr. Groff briefly summarized the symposium at the Saturday lun-. cheon. He stated that power generation would be the primary new use of coal, and that there were definite possibilities that technological advances in underground gasification of coal beds would make coal gas competitive in modern markets. Groff closed by praising the University system for its cooperation in the Symposium and future anticipated research projects. The conference concluded with a field trip to the Berkeley Pit and the new Anaconda Company Concentrator. Get MORE For Whot You Poy SAVE At MODE 0' DAY!

Mines Snag Third Homecoming W,in by John Giaco.mino. Before an estimated 1,500 football fans the Mines triumphed over the Northern Montana Lights of Havre by a score of 13-7. In 1962 and '63, Northern was also the victim of the Mines' Homecoming. The win gave the Orediggers a 2-1-1 standing in the Montana Collegiate Conference. This is their best record for the past twelve years. In the first period of play the Orediggers moved rapidly to the Northern 35, but via a fumble, the Orediggers lost control of the ball. Northern took over and seemed touchdown bound, but the mighty Mines defense slowed them to a trot on their own 35 and took control of the ball. The Mines suddenly ramoaged downfield under the le~dership of quarterback Bill ~obmson. Under the superb passing of Bill Robinson, Pat Marx reached for a 12 yard pass in the end zone and pulled the Mines to a 6-0 lead. Bill Daily then conver~ed for the extra point and the Mines led 7-0 On the sa:ne drive, agile halfback Pat Leary made a 30 yar.d gam on a Bill Robinson pass. Neither team managed a theat going into halftime. Driving steadily in the se~on~ half the Lights drove to the Mines 26 but were stopped when John Sutey and Pat Leary broke up two end zone passes. After a N ort!ler~ punt which landed on the Mines 20 Bill Robinson was' hammered fo~ an ll-yard loss back on his own 9-.yard line .. Througl~ some exceptional downfleld blockmg by the Orediggers offense, halfback Joh.n Sutey was able to outmaneuver his opponents for a 77-yard run to the Northern 14. Sutey the~ rambled over for the second M111es score three plays later. Daily's PAT attempt proved futile but a pen~lty against the Lights gave t~e Mmes a second chance. A Robms.on to Sutey pass went inco.mplete m the end zone. . d . d Once again in the peno the Mines moved steadily to the Northern 25 but were stopped on the fourth d'o.wn with yard. to go. With only 1:58 s~con~s remaming in the game, Lights quarterback, Terry Kelly, fir~d a 13-yard pass to end Bob Ridgeway for Northern's only touchdown. Marvin Sunderland's expert kicking toe split the uprights for the 7th point.,

Upon the opening of the first quarter of play, Northern's Steele Ard intercepted a Cal Vine pass and raced 31 yards untouched for the touchdown. In the third period of play, the Orediggers fumbled the ball on their own 12-yard line. The Lights, capitalized on .the fumble, then scored on an 11-yard pass from Terry Kelly to Skip Lampton who was standing in the end zone by himself. With only 15 seconds left in the ball game, Mines' Bill Daily ran for a 34-yard touchdown on a screen pass from quarterback Ron Koehler. On a similar play in the third quarter, Daily almost saw daylight; but Northern's Len Harrington, the last light in the touchdown trail, nailed Daily on the Light 45-yard line. The Orediggers did not playas well as would be' expected of them; however, the Miners were plagued with many injuries. The Mines' defensive unit hammered at the Light's offense with Chuck Starin and Byron Crooker turning in some fine defensive tactics.

Coach Ed Simonich stated that . the players have being doing very well and they must continue to improve. He also remarked that he will continue to use a full elevenman team in the coming games.

The scale of the 1964 Collegiate Conference is so intricately balanced that a field goal, a fumble, an intercepted pass, a goal line stand or just a hearty backing of the team by the students may determine championship or last place. The Lower Division is composed of the School of Mines, Rocky Mountain College, and Northern Montana College. The Mines have · d h defeated Rocky 12 - 6 an d he t em 6-6, while falling to defeat by Northern 14-6' however, a 12-6 hornecorn, ing victory avenged the Orediggers' loss.

Playing a determined Rocky eleven who were seeking revenge for an earlIer 12-16 loss, the Mines team ended a rough afternoon ball game 111a 6-6 tie. Hampered by penalties, the Mines crew put in a good show1I1g of themselves to disappoint a homecoming crowd expecting a Rocky victory. Defensively, the Orediggers were too tough for anything in the way of surprises from the Rocky Beats. Hard tackling and alert passing defense stunted the Bears in their efforts for a victory. Rocky gained ItS score after a Mines punt faltered and a disputed official calling on a pass play. Not daunted by the Bears' half-time lead of 6-0 the Orediggers fired back in the' third 9uarter to even things up.

Water outlets for future rest rooms and for sprinkling systems have been installed.
